LinkedIn +

VI-grade is to install a driver in motion simulator at the FCA Latam Center of Excellence in Dynamics Simulation and Vehicle Active Safety facility, at PUC-Minas in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. VI-grade says that this will be the first dynamic driving simulator to ever be installed in Latin America.

The system, which is scheduled for delivery in the forthcoming months, will be mainly used by FCA Latam for the development of new cars and components, with the purpose of improving the design phase by anticipating subjective analysis done on test tracks and roads.

The simulator will also be used for academic research and to provide services to other companies and institutions. The government may contract the simulation center for virtually testing new roads and conducting psychological research on the behavior and the reaction of drivers in particular traffic situations.
